As many chefs have said, food can be considered the universal language that connects people. For Vergara, she said that “Food is a way to bring people together. There’s something about cooking a delicious meal and enjoying it with the people you love. Eating together is a time of laughter and reflection and most importantly love.”
For Vergara, the Walmart Cookshop is an opportunity to cook with her son Manolo. Just like many families, cooking with loved ones is time well spent in the kitchen.
As Vergara said, “Food has always been at the center of our family and holiday traditions. My son, Manolo, is a great cook. I love to eat anything he makes!”
Vergara said, “It is such a blessing to be able to work with family. Manolo and I share the same love for food so this was perfect for us. I wanted to create a video for Walmart Cookshop to introduce this special program to a new audience and to help others find and create personalized recipes from some of the best chefs.”
While Vergara might have her son in the kitchen to help create delicious recipes, some home cooks need some additional confidence. The simplicity and customization from the Walmart Cookshop are key to helping them master many cooking skills.
For Vergara, she thinks that the Walmart program can help with cooking confidence. Referring to the Walmart Cookshop, Vergara said, “It has definitely made me more excited to confident to try new recipes in the kitchen.

Still, not everything always goes perfectly while cooking. Vergara believes that “Walmart Cookshop is the best solution if a dish doesn’t go as planned. It really is so easy to follow along and customize recipes. If I can do it so can you!”
When people try the Walmart Cookshop, they are introduced to Vergara and presented with an option of two cakes. Guests must choose either Dulce de Leche or Mexican Hot Chocolate. Of course, I had to ask which cake is Vergara’s preferred cake.
Vergara said, “They are both so delicious it’s hard to just choose one! But, I love that the Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake is not too sweet and has a little kick of warming spice from the cinnamon. It’s such a perfect combination, so I’d have to say that’s my favorite!”
With the holiday season here, Vergara has some holiday food traditions in her family. Those dishes reflect her Colombia heritage.
Vergara mentioned that her family loves “to make traditional Colombia desserts like buñuelos, dulce de leche or torta negra. I look forward to them every year!”
